Start Your New Life in Malibu

Living with addiction is a dark, scary and lonely place. Relationships are damaged, families are torn apart, living situations aren’t ideal and overall health and self-esteem are extremely poor. Making the decision to turn your life around is a big one, and while it can be scary, it is also the best decision you will ever make. Why not begin your new life in Malibu, where you can be completely relaxed, in a beautiful setting, with supportive people, and the best treatment options available?

The Beauty of Malibu

Malibu has long been known as one of the most beautiful places in the country. It’s picturesque ocean views and canyons lure visitors from all over the world everyday. The calm, serene, laid-back lifestyle of Malibu is the perfect place to find serenity and inner peace. The chaotic, noisy world that addiction brings is finally silenced, and stress can finally melt away. Being able to be totally relaxed and waking up to natural beauty everyday will allow you to better focus on treatment, and it will give you a calm mindset to take with you for the rest of your life.

The ocean coastline isn’t the only beauty that Malibu offers. There’s plenty of mountains and canyons with great hiking, caves and coves along the beach to explore and calming waterfalls to bring you to a place of complete relaxation – keeping the stress of your triggers and temptations worlds away.

Healthy Living

Malibu isn’t just another beautiful city in Southern California, it is a proud community of people living the laid-back beach lifestyle. Malibu residents take pride in enjoying their surroundings, and healthy living is right on top. Runs along the beach, hikes to beautiful ocean views and yoga sessions with the sounds of waves breaking is just a part of daily life for the people of Malibu. You can be part of it, too.

Healthy living not only includes exercise, it includes eating healthy as well. Malibu attracts the best of the best – and that includes food and restaurants. Eating fresh food and vegetables is an important part not only of healthy living, but as a part of recovery as well. Drug and alcohol abuse leads to changes in eating habits. This can affect you by either a marked weight gain or weight loss, so it is important to give your body healthy food to give you a healthy mind. Food with too much sugar or poor nutritional value can lead to irritability and stress, so making sure you’re doing everything to give yourself a clear mind is important – and that includes food.
